Wing Chun International has a collective set of reward systems, these are used to motivate and inspire the children to do there best and to strive for the next goal, our reward systems are as follows:
These Reward clips are used to reward the children in class that are performing at there best, these are a great tool to take the focus away from the children who may be misbehaving as they are looking for attention or simply because they are being children, when the children see the others being rewarded for there great behaviour in class they soon follow suit.
Ten rewards clips earned and kept on the kung fu suit can be exchanged for Grand Master Badges.
Grand Master Badges
Grand Master badges are a reward system to show consistent achievment over a long period of time, these badges get placed onto the Kung Fu suit.
White Grand Master Badges, Children earn ten reward clips and are then allowed to exchange them for one White Grand Master badge.
Red Grand Master badges, five white grand master badges show a period of time of constant reward and improvement, therefore are awarded the red grand Master badge.
Yellow Grand Master Badges, Five Red Grand Master badges again show that a significant time period of achievement has been passed, when five red grand master badges have been achieved the children are rewarded with the ultimate Yellow Grand Master Badge.
Training Incentive Programme is a key method used to help the children measure there attendance and achievements during a grading cycle, Junior warriors set the goal to achieve the next Sash every eight weeks, in order to help keep them on track and to shown that they are not just given the next sash they are taught to earn a TIP stripe that allows them to be put forwward to Graduate at the next Childrens Graduation party and be awarded there next Sash at the end of the grading cycle. The student will have demonstarted the importance of a key life skill within the first and second month at week three of the period and then again in grading week, these three strips are awarded and taped to the current sash that is worn and demonstrate that the child has passed the TIP test and qualified to graduate to the next sash level.
Junior warriors earn 3 TIP Stripes per grading rotation and The Little Dragons earn 1 TIP per week making 8 TIP Stripes acheived within the grading Cycle.
The TIP Stripes are as follows and the children must demonstrate an understanding of these key lifeskills:
